JAMES TAVERNIER insists Rangers will be ready to go toe-to-toe with Galatasaray as they bid for a Europa League berth.

Steven Gerrard's side booked their place in the play-off round with a 4-0 victory over Willem II on Thursday night.

A home tie with the Turkish giants now lies ahead next week and Tavernier is relishing another big occasion on the continent.

He told RangersTV: "We are all looking forward to it. We obviously saw the result that they got and we have got them in the next round at home.

"We are delighted to be playing at home. Obviously we can't get the fans in which is a shame but the fans will be watching on TV.

"It means a lot for this club to get into the group stage and we want to get the club into the group stage for the fans.

"It is going to be a tough game but, at our best, we can go toe-to-toe with anybody."
